And so begins the story of bacon, three ways:

1. A bacon complaint gone viral

2. an amazing study on the health benefits of bacon

3. bacon-flavored seaweed!

Let’s get started!

Tesco bacon story

Tesco’s Back Bacon Rashers!

It all began in England, when a dissatisfied customer went viral against Tesco food store for “shorting” him one rasher of bacon!

A “rasher” of bacon in England is a strip, so this guy got crazy for missing out on one of his bacon strips!

As you can see, “back bacon” aka a bacon rasher, has a different shape than traditional American bacon, but it no doubt is just as delicious, so of COURSE he would be angry!

You must click on the story to see how this incredible bacon controversy played out, beginning with Tesco’s initial response back to him via twitter:
